Kortrijk, Belgium, 12 June 2014 – Barco, a global leader in projection technology, is proud to expand its projection portfolio for rental and staging with a brand-new three-chip DLP projector. Offering a brightness level of 35,000 center lumens, the brand-new HDQ-4K35 is capable of showing native 4K content at 60 Hz frame rates. It features a unique integrated design with internal power supply, rental frame and no external chimney fan. What’s more, the HDQ-4K35 is fully ready to be combined with Barco’s groundbreaking 4K screen management system, which allows native 4K projector blending – a first in the industry. Barco will unveil the new HDQ-4K35 at InfoComm, from 18 – 20 June in Las Vegas, and the projector will be commercially available as of Q4 2014.“Barco has been the industry leader in high-brightness and high-resolution projection technology for decades and with the introduction of the HDQ-4K35 projector we continue to raise the bar for image quality,” comments Bill Morris, Vice President Venues & Hospitality at Barco. “Thanks to its 4K (4,096 x 2,160) resolution and 60 Hz frame rate, it delivers razor-sharp images to boost live events with stunning visuals in vibrant, rich colors.” Striking image quality
The HDQ-4K35 is equipped with a Xenon 6.5 kW lamp and a high-contrast optical engine that guarantee vivid colors and present audiences with crisp, stunning images on every occasion. Rental companies that already own a fleet of HDQ-2K40 projectors can reuse their XLD lenses for the HDQ-4K35 projector or opt for dedicated 4K lenses if higher lens shifts are needed to achieve the right image.
A perfect match for E2
Offering native 4K input and output, the brand-new E2 image processor – also being launched at InfoComm 2014 – is the only screen management system on the market able to manage a 32 projector blend using the HDQ-4K35 with refresh rates up to 60 Hz.
Designed for the road
Perfect for a multitude of rental & staging applications, the HDQ-4K35 boasts a unique integrated design with internal power supply, rental frame and no external chimney fan. Designed with the road in mind, the HDQ-4K35 comes with a rugged metal chassis to withstand the challenging conditions of continuous shipping. Just like the other Barco rental projectors, the HDQ-4K35 features a modular design for easy installation and servicing – a feature that’s widely acclaimed by rental customers across the world.
